Welcome to Northwood Trail, England’s Fairy Sanctuary and delightful woodland attraction. Just 20 minutes from York, this unique fairy wood has existed for generations, but only now is opening up for everyone to enjoy.

Enjoy the artefacts and stories of strange woodland creatures and Professor Howlands discoveries in the Fairy Museum. The Trail and Café Bar is “off grid”, producing its own electricity and treating its own waste water.
